Sonic Xmas Jumper Issue :(

Unfortunately there’s been a major issue with this Sonic jumper between the manufacturer and supplier. We have just been informed they were made in the wrong size, labels are wrong, design not correct etc etc…We’ve been left on the front line to deal with customers with very little information to go on. Obviously customers are expecting their Christmas jumper and we’re now having to explain they may not arrive in time, if at all. It’s been a nightmare.

We deal with this supplier (one of the biggest in the UK for games, consoles, accessories and merchandise) on a daily basis and rarely have an issue. We feel terrible and are working to get refunds/website credit to our customers. This is a problem for all UK retailers and not just Video Game Box.

We have been inundated with enquires during this very busy period and we’re trying to resolve asap. Pleas bear with us. All tickets will be replied to and a refund processed shortly.

Sorry again for the upset and inconvenience caused.
